After backpacking her way around Europe journalist Sarah Turnbull is ready to embark on one last adventure before heading home to Sydney. A chance meeting with a charming Frenchman in Bucharest changes her travel plans forever. Acting on impulse, she agrees to visit Fredric in Paris for a week. Put a very French Frenchman together with a strong-willed Australian girl and the result is some spectacular - and often hilarious - cultural clashes.

Sometimes when he didn't know he was being watched, Meggie would look at him and try desperately to imprint his face upon her brain's core. And he would turn to find her watching him, a look in his eyes of haunted grief, a doomed look. She understood the implicit message, or thought she did; he must go, back to the Church and his duties. Never again with the same spirit, perhaps, but more able to serve. For only those who have slipped and fallen know the vicissitudes of the way.

The Thorn Birds is my favorite book ever, I've got a paperback book, a DVD of its movie, and I wanted to have an audio version so that I can always listen to, especially when I'm on the go. I purchased this audio book with excitement but it turned out to be a HUGE disappointment. About a half of the story was skipped with all of the critical, beautiful parts and conversations... gone. What a waste!
